Pickle Me This

March 25, 2005

Provisions gotten; fingers crossed

We went to Osaka today to buy magazines and to Kobe to buy soup. These are the kind of errands I run, and Stuart is lucky enough to run along beside me. We got UTNE and Vanity Fair, the latter with three near-naked women on the front which will be a little embarrassing to read on the train. Unless they are animated, naked women on the train are inappropriate. We also went to The Sanrio Gallery to check out three floors of Hello Kitty Fare. My favourite section was the appliance department, stocked with your Hello Kitty rice cooker, kettle, toaster, dehumidifier etc. Serious.

We came home to find a note from the post office, who had tried to deliver something from the British Embassy at 4:00pm. We jumped on our bikes, as you do, and raced to the post office at super speed. Unfortunately the man could not give me my package. I don’t know why. He kept pointing to a sign in Hiragana as explanation, but that wasn’t very helpful. So we will hope for the best, and I’ll go to fetch it tomorrow.

In book news, I’m consumed with magazines and will soon be starting “Travels with my Aunt” by Graham Greene.
